2019-10-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Edman or Isan Diaz for future?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
I'm an Edman guy at this point (Craig Goldstein)
2019-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Tommy Edman be an everyday 2B?
(Willie McGee from St. Louis)
I don't know if he's every day at one spot, but I think he's a super-utility type that can pick up 500+ PA playing all over and resting regulars without much of a dropoff. I'm a fan. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-09-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Tommy Edman?-------I like his bat (switch hitter) and his speed, and also his position versatility-----he's done a really nice job for the Cards and I think he's made a pretty strong case for a starting spot next year. Thx.
(bob from pa)
Agree with you, bob. Why wouldn't he be a starter for them? Could throw him anywhere and he's very smart in all facets. I expect that OBP to rise next season. He has that play-with-the-Cardinals-his-whole-career vibe going... (Tyler Oringer)

2019-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a certain type of prospect profile you seem to be always leaning toward?
(Vladimir from Somewhere Red)
I've been thinking a lot about this with the new baseball. I wonder if the hit-over-power guys become more valuable in an offensive environment, in which power isn't at such a premium. That is, do your Trent Grishams become more valuable in this type of environment? Hell, should you target more guys like Tommy Edman? I think I'd be leaning to more guys with high-end hit tools and plate discipline, assuming that the rabbit ball will help the power manifest on the field in the higher levels. (JP Breen)
